Bharath again urges for measures to ensure transparent UNC internal elections


    UNC Leadership hopeful Vasant Bharath is reiterating his calls for several measures to be put in place to ensure transparent internal elections of the party.

    The UNC is set to host internal polls on December 6th 2020 and this includes elections for leadership of the party, currently held by Mrs Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

    At a media conference on Sunday 8th November 2020, Mr Bharath claimed that his letters to the party outline his four requests have remained unanswered.

    He has again called for the appointment of a neutral elections committee, independent observers, the early disclosure of the membership list for transparency and to find out who currently holds the position of party General Secretary.

    Mr Bharath says he decided to put the matters in the public domain as it seems the UNC “do not intend to answer” his letters.
